‘Don’t be afraid to be bold...’

Hay­ley Has­sel­hoff, daugh­ter of Bay­watch star David, stars in Nav­abi’s lat­est cam­paign. She talks to Katie Wright

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - LIFESTYLE -

There’s no short­age of celebrity off­spring in the fash­ion world right now, with Kaia Ger­ber (daugh­ter of Cindy Craw­ford), Lily-Rose Depp (daugh­ter of Johnny) and Hai­ley Bald­win (daugh­ter of ac­tor Stephen) just a few of the most in-de­mand cat­walk­ers.

Hay­ley Has­sel­hoff also has a fa­mous fa­ther (Bay­watch leg­end David), but this 26-year-old isn’t your av­er­age model.

As well as pos­ing up a storm in plus-size cam­paigns and writ­ing a col­umn for Marie Claire, the blonde beauty is now de­vel­op­ing her tal­ents be­hind the cam­era, hav­ing both art-di­rected and styled Nav­abi’s new au­tumn/win­ter cam­paign.

“I came up with the theme, I came up with the lo­ca­tion, I mean I got the whole team to­gether, I work with the bud­get, so I’m re­ally do­ing the whole pro­duc­tion for the shoot as well,” she tells me dur­ing a chat on the phone from her na­tive Los An­ge­les.

“Some­times it’s a way more hec­tic day be­cause I’m do­ing four jobs in one, but I’ve got to say I love the hec­tic­ness.”

Has­sel­hoff has just re­turned home af­ter an equally busy sum­mer, trav­el­ling to Mykonos and Paris for work, and to Italy for her dad’s wed­ding.

Now she’s tak­ing stock and look­ing ahead to more ex­cit­ing projects. “Ob­vi­ously, mod­el­ling is a huge thing that al­ways stays in my life, but I think that I’m tran­si­tion­ing more into a curve style ex­pert in dif­fer­ent fields,” Hay­ley (be­low) says.

With that in mind, we de­cided to ask the fash­ion pro for her ad­vice for a va­ri­ety of dress­ing dilem­mas — from dates to hol­i­days to lin­gerie.

Here are Hay­ley Has­sel­hoff’s shop­ping and styling tips for ev­ery oc­ca­sion...

If you’re go­ing on a first date...

“The first thing is to find some­thing that you’ve al­ways felt com­fort­able in. You never want to go to a first date and be sit­ting there wor­ry­ing about if he’s look­ing at your stom­ach or if you have to pull your shirt in dif­fer­ent ar­eas.

“For me, I feel sex­i­est in a two-piece suit, so I will al­ways have a two-piece suit, like the one that Nav­abi has in their col­lec­tion, ready to go.”

If you’re look­ing for the per­fect pair of jeans...

“I would hon­estly say the best thing is to go into a de­part­ment store and try on dif­fer­ent cuts of jeans. Try some on and fig­ure out what speaks to you. And maybe, why not take a leap of faith this au­tumn/ win­ter and go get some flared jeans and try out some dif­fer­ent trends? I’ve got to say that Evans and Marks & Spencer and ASOS have the best jeans for curve girls.”

If you’re go­ing to a wed­ding...

“We were in Puglia [for my dad’s wed­ding] so it was quite warm — you’ve got to fig­ure out where your wed­ding des­ti­na­tion is, then you can go from there.

“Have some fun with your wed­ding at­tire; don’t be afraid to be bold and ‘out there’. It’s about cel­e­brat­ing, so go out there and feel good and cel­e­brate what­ever makes you feel great. Ei­ther a short dress, a long dress, or at the end of the day, rock out a suit.”

If you’re shop­ping for swimwear...

“I wear a one-piece. I’m not a bikini girl, I can tell you that. I have a big­ger waist and I like to feel com­fort­able and tucked in when I’m on the beach. There’s so many amaz­ing swim­suit brands out there: Swim­suits For All, ASOS, Figleaves. And once you find your swimwear, find a great cover-up to throw on. But re­mem­ber to have fun on your hol­i­day and don’t make the pri­mary pur­pose to cover up your body — in­stead make it the pur­pose to cel­e­brate it.”

If you’re look­ing for some sexy lin­gerie...

“I’m a big lin­gerie fan, I’ve got to say that. I al­ways think Curvy Kate is great, I think Panache is great, Marks & Spencer have great lin­gerie pieces that are af­ford­able. Def­i­nitely go and get fit­ted... hav­ing good un­der­gar­ments can change the way that you stand, the way that you look at your­self, you can lose a cou­ple pounds just by get­ting the right bra.”
